Trump: standing up to hate and intolerance

Doing what a president needs to do – speaking against hate and intolerance, and against violence.

Politico: Trump in tweet: Portland attack ‘unacceptable’

President Donald Trump on Monday morning condemned the attacks in Portland, Oregon, where two people were killed after trying to intervene as a man delivered an anti-Muslim rant directed at two women on a train.

The tweet was sent after Trump arrived to give remarks at the Arlington National Cemetery for Memorial Day.

On Saturday, three men were allegedly attacked after they tried to stop a suspect, Jeremy Joseph Christian, from verbally disparaging the women, one of whom was wearing a hijab.

    A white Bernie supporter with serious mental health issues stabs three white guys and it’s a right-wing race crime? Weird.

    • He is a white supremacist who was abusing two Muslim women. The victims intervened. Ergo, it was a race crime.

    I dont think Mr T has his head, in what most would see as ‘reality’ ?

    All through the election campaign, he effectively promoted racial indifference.. against muslims, mexicans etc. & now hes talking as if that was another Mr DJT ?? what a total nut-job !! 😦

    “Make America Great Again.. by attacking/denigrating everyone else ?!”

      I think he has a lot of practice in standing up to hate and intolerance, Zedd. Even from you.

        oh dear Alan..
        Mr T brings it on himself, without mine or anyone else’s ‘HELP’. He see himself as ‘the human headline’ regardless of how shockingly BAD it becomes. I think he even tops Mr Key, on arrogance, smugness & TOTAL self-absorbed importance !! 😦

          I think you just proved my point, Zedd.

          • To see your point Alan, first Zedd needs to understand himself… his last sentence shows who he really is..

      “Ivanka Trump HQ” is Ivanka’s *Brand* site.

      After the post generated criticism, Ivanka sent out this tweet, honouring Americans who had died in battle.

        Why would Ivanka be tweeting that at 4.33 am the day after Memorial Day?

          Might just be how the Twitter time stamping works in different countries. They’re 16 hours behind us in NY.
